Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is an interesting book and provides back story to the main Battlemage section of the story. However this is very obviously an early work of the author and while ok it doesn't really develop and flush out the characters as well as it could. A good book to read for background on the main series but not a book I would start reading the series from. Better to start at Battlemage and come back to this one. One person found this helpful. A great series for the wars and unrest involving the people of Alus and their efforts against the evil forces that continue to threaten them.
Another great book by Donald WIgboldy! This series has been outstanding! The time line from this series is so messed up i don't want to follow the story anymore. Book 1 was great then book 2 goes years back in time, book 3 follows book 1 and o surprise book 4 goes years back in time. I even don't want to read book NR 5 anymore.
Sorry but the first one was fantastic. This book is written from the perspective of two main characters, who do not know of each other, and are almost completely separate. While individually, their tales are quite well-written and draw the reader in, the fact that every chapter alternates to the other main character's story drives me nuts, and actually made me stop reading this halfway through, as ending a chapter on a cliff-hanger, and then swapping to the other guy leaves me going And by that point its difficult to remember what the other character was doing when we left him Disappointing after reading Battle Mage which I enjoyed immensely.
Like many others, I am beginning to suspect there exists a template, a "checklist" if you will, which aspiring Writers of the "progressive" slant must achieve in order to even have their work considered. It's pretty easy to spot really. The same goes for the historic traditional moral values they espouse- trash, misrepresent, and mock..
Include gratuitously sexual situations between your characters which are wholly unnecessary to the plot, yet encourage prurient fantasies in the minds of the youth especially young men. Be as descriptive as you can right up to the point of testing the bounds of censorship. There's a good comrade! Today's' males need to be more passive, sensitive, and of course submissive to strong female leadership.
If you must write about traditional macho men, be sure to make them bumbling idiots who must continually be rescued by the more mature, intelligent feminist women in the story. Oh, and be sure that he gets his azz handed to him by one or more strong females occasionally. Never mind the fact that women cannot SIRE anything, which is why only men can ever rightly be referred to as "Sir".
We are trying to force-ably reshape a cultural mindset here, and a few eggs must be broken!
Needless to say, the checklist goes on, and Mr. What will become of them when they face the High King?
Continuing on from the last story, it provides another subsequent story set within this rich and highly immersive fantasy world. After waking up amongst the dead on a battle field, Dante finds himself retracing the path of the dark army that attacked them. Darius is an apprentice wizard who also hopes to seal the portals and prevent the forces from entering their realm, along with the wizards of Aerworld.
Both on a mission to help save their world, they will overcome all manner of dangerous obstacles and enemies that lie their path. Will they manage to complete their mission and save everyone? Can they seal the portal in time before the enemies come through? A franchise expertly crafted from start to finish, this really is a series that makes the most of its core premise, really following through. With ideas of destiny and strength in the face of adversity, it definitely has a lot of fun with its subject matter as well.
It manages to achieve this by getting to the heart of its characters, as Wigboldy has a clear understanding of what drives them as people. Accessible to readers both young and old, it really manages to resonate on a universal level with its classic timeless tales. This looks set to continue for quite some time to come too, with the series looking set to continue indefinitely for years to follow.
